Cover Reveal for Mudflap Undercover and a Contest!

It’s time for a cover reveal!

Christi Snow and M.F. Smith are working hard on the second installment for the Foxtrot Team series! Mudflap Undercover is slated to come out August, 2014. They’re excited to share the cover and the blurb with you. 

So without further ado, here’s the cover for Mudflap Undercover, (Book 2 Foxtrot Team Series)!

 

All proceeds from this novel will benefit Lubbock, TX area volunteer fire departments.

 

Story Overview:

Nine months ago Mudflap Davidson got everything he never knew he wanted, his dream job…special agent for the Lubbock Foxtrot Team (LiFT) and his dream girl…sexy, super-agent Shanae Anders. But now those two things have collided in the guise of a motorcycle club turf war.

LiFT knows trouble is brewing again and they think the Alliance to Liberate Texas (ALT)is most likely behind it. They want agents on hand when it all goes down.

As a result, Shanae has spent the last six months working undercover in the Intrepids Motorcycle Club posing as DEA agent, Slade Montgomery’s, girlfriend. So far, Mudflap has been relegated to the surveillance truck where he spends his days watching his girl hang off another guy’s arm. Good times.

So when an opportunity falls into Mudflap’s lap to go undercover himself, he jumps at it. The problem…he’s undercover with the rival Mambas Motorcycle Club. Now the violence is heating up. But will both Shanae and Mudflap come out of it unscathed? They are no longer working together, but are, in fact, at opposite ends of the gun…

Amnesia & Sociology 101

I’ve always been a creative person and as such, went to college studying creative things (I started out as an architecture major but graduated with the equivalent of a fashion design degree), but my favorite class in college had absolutely nothing to do with creativity…it was freshman sociology.

Sociology (and this definition is TOTALLY my interpretation of the field) is the study of why people act and react to their world the way that they do. Basically, how our environment affects the way that we react to things and develop as a person. I personally believe that much of our personalities we are born with, but how we respond to events in our world is based upon our own personal life experiences. Our life experiences train us to behave and react in certain ways.

That idea is where this book came from. I am a huge male/male romance reader! Easily 40-50% of the books I read are m/m. And my favorite trope is definitely the guy who’s been hiding in the closet or just discovered that he’s actually gay.

But what would happen if suddenly that guy who was in the closet woke up one day and didn’t remember that he wasn’t supposed to be gay? What if every reason behind why he was in the closet was suddenly wiped from his memory?

That’s where this book idea came from.

Trevor and Jamie are best friends and have been that way for 14 years. Jamie is gay; Trevor is straight. They’ve been having issues with their friendship lately because Jamie is in love with Trevor. Having to watch Trevor sleep with one random woman after another has taken its toll. Jamie can’t do it anymore.

But after a fall on a mountain trail, Trevor wakes up from a coma with absolutely no recollection of the man he was before the accident and the absolute surety that he’s gay. He can’t understand how that wasn’t true before his fall, too.

Like all my books, this is a romantic suspense and it has the normal danger/bad guy scenario going on (Trevor works as an investigator for the Forestry Service and was in the midst of a huge investigation when he got hurt). But the true suspense story in this book is what did Trevor forget that pushed him into the closet in the first place? And how could he have hidden that from his gay best friend for 14 years? And after hiding that kind of secret, how can Jamie ever trust him again?

I’m so excited about this book. This is my first foray into full-length m/m romantic suspense and I hope you all like it as much as I enjoyed writing it. This is the first in a 4-6 book series. All the books will be m/m romantic suspense and each book will feature different couples. A lot of the coming characters are introduced in this book.

And it releases this week…March 19th.

Re-adjusting my release schedule…

Hello, everyone! I hope that you all had a great holiday. We had a good one here, although judging by my house we’re still celebrating. Yes, my tree is STILL up. I know, I should be ashamed to type that, but you know….it’s just a fact of my life now. I’m busy. Luckily my husband is understanding about it and knows how crazy my life is…although he did mention it this morning so I probably should do something about it soon…well, at least before Valentine’s day.

What has had me so busy? Well, writing. Yay, but whoa am I feeling behind. I’ll be honest with you guys….I screwed up here. I’ve been actively writing on two books the last few months…THROUGH THE VEIL and SNOWCROFT LOST. On one hand, that’s good because TTV is 1st draft done while SCL will be at that point in two days. But because I wasn’t concentrating on one or the other, it’s going to mean that they both come out a little later than I had hoped…and that pushes ALL my releases for the year back.

And because I love my husband and family, I need to relieve some of the pressure here. So I’ve come to the hard decision to push the release of RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE to the fall. I know, I hate that too, but I think it’s best so that I can make sure you all receive the best writing I’m capable of giving you.

So here’s my tentative release schedule for 2014 (and remember, this is always subject to change. Maybe I’ll surprise you and release early or throw another surprise for the year in there…hehe):

Snowcroft Lost – March, 2014

Through the Veil – May, 2014

Mudflap UnderCover – August, 2014

Right By Your Side – Fall, 2014

Release Day for The Christmas Top!

A year ago, I was playing with the idea of writing an m/m (male/male love story) novel. I adore reading m/m, but have never actually written anything like that before. So Mia Downing challenged me to write a novella, just to test the waters. The below release is the result of that. I wrote it over Christmas break 2012 for one of my all-time favorite serial lines….Decadent Publishing 1 Night Stand.

For those of you not familiar with the line, Madame Eve runs the service for a 1 Night Stand. It’s a matchmaking service and Madame Eve has somewhat mystical matchmaking powers and abilities to match people. An HEA is almost guaranteed although her customers rarely realize that’s even a possibility.
 

For my story, she matched up two men that have a past together but never saw their match coming. I hope you all enjoy meeting Jason Wieland (pediatrician) and Mark Cummins (NFL Offensive Coordinator) as they find that One Night can lead to so much more…..

BTW, this is a novella and can EASILY be read in less than an hour. Perfect for the busy holidays.

 

Blurb for The Christmas Top


All he wants for Christmas…
It’s time for Mark Cummins to come out of the closet. He’s ready, but he’s never been topped. Asking Madame Eve for the one-night stand of his fantasies, he hopes she can grant his Christmas wish.

 

He’s a less-than-merry gentleman…
Jason Wieland’s life partner died in a horrific hate crime two years before and he hasn’t taken a lover since. He knows it’s time, and he reaches out to the 1Night Stand dating service to find the right man to light up his holiday. But when masculine, sexy, and extremely straight Mark shows up, he doesn’t know what to do. Is this 1Night Stand a cruel joke or has Madame Eve truly worked Christmas magic?

Excerpt
“Listen, you seem like a nice guy, but I think Madame Eve must have made a mistake here. I don’t think we’re compatible.” He started to stand, but Mark’s hand on his arm halted him.

“Wait. I don’t know what I did wrong, but I don’t think she made a mistake. I’m incredibly attracted to you.”

Jason lowered into his chair with a reluctant sigh. “So, you’re telling me you’re gay.” He winced. He hadn’t meant to attack the guy, but he wouldn’t be made a fool of, either.

“Yes. Why would you think otherwise?” His brows furrowed. “Why else would I be here?”

Running a hand through his hair, Jason tried to get a read off the other guy. Was he just bored and out to try something new? That couldn’t be it, could it? “Is this some sort of mid-life sexual experiment for you? Have you even been with another guy before?”

“I don’t know where you’re getting all this from. I certainly haven’t had this type of issue with other guys. Usually they’re fine with me wanting to hook up with them. What did you think this was? Madame Eve sets up one-night stands. I’m not looking for a commitment.” He narrowed his eyes. “You know what…never mind, I shouldn’t have come. I never should have accepted the invitation. Whenever something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. I wish I could say ‘nice to meet you, Sidney,’ but unfortunately now I wish I’d stayed home for the holidays with my family.”

Jason didn’t miss the flash of hurt and disappointment on his face as he stalked away. Damn, that appeared genuine. A knot settled low in his belly. Had he misjudged the situation? He played back over the evening as he took off in a jog after Mark.

Mark Cummins knows it’s time for him to come out of the closet, but he has one fantasy that he’s never had fulfilled. He’s never been topped. When he receives his invitation from Madame Eve for a 1 Night Stand, he knows this is just the Christmas gift that he needs.

Jason Wieland’s life partner died in a horrific hate crime two years ago. He hasn’t taken a lover since. When his best friend, Molly Cummins, sets him up with Madame Eve’s service, he knows it’s time to get back into the dating world.

Title: Right By Your Side
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Series: Martin Ranch #1
Projected release date: May, 2014

Story Overview:
Best Female Country Artist. Sold out world-wide tour. Record-setting album sales. It’s been a stellar year for Skye Martin and it’s left her exhausted. All she wants to do is go home to Oklahoma, curl up in her little house, and veg out in pj’s with a pile of junk food. But when her tour bus crashes in the middle of West Texas, her priorities suddenly shift. Now she’s sitting bedside hoping her best friend and bodyguard, KC, survives. 


For Scott Martin, he simply wants this horrible year to end. After the murder of his brother, his family is falling apart. With one crisis after another pulling him back to the family ranch, he’s put way too many late night miles on his truck between his family home and Lubbock, where he works as a paramedic. When he comes upon the wrecked tour bus, he has no idea this is one emergency which will change his life forever.

Skye and Scott quickly form a friendship which hints at possibilities of more. But as these two dodge paparazzi, over-zealous label executives, and stalker fans, they soon discover that everything is easier when you have someone you love RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE. And that becomes even more important when they discover the bus wreck wasn’t an accident…

 

An Author’s Reference Library….

This household is made up of voracious readers. As such, our library has always been fairly eclectic, but as I look at my writer’s reference library…and these are just the books that I’m reading for reference on books I will be writing over the next year…it occurs to me that our library is becoming more and more eclectic.

And this is just the library. You should see my google search variety! O.O The subjects cover police work, self-defense, motorcycle gangs, life in the music world, wicca, and GLBT. Lots of interesting stuff in all that…some I hope to infuse into my writing along the way.

BTW, a quick writing update. Currently I am working on first drafts of two novels:

1. THROUGH THE VEIL….this was slated to be released Nov/Dec. I’m pretty sure that timeframe is going to slip back. This book is the first in a seven book paranormal romantic suspense series so it’s very important that I get all the groundwork laid out right for the whole series. I am so freaking excited about this book and series. I’ve plotted and have titles for all SEVEN books and am itching to write ALL of them NOW! LOL…but I have several other series to work on right now too.

2. SNOWCROFT LOST….this is my NaNoWriMo novel (50,000 words in the month of November) and is my full length m/m romantic suspense. So far, the writing on it is going REALLY well…it’s at 20,000 words this morning.

Other books coming soon:

3. RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE…the first book in the Martin Ranch series. Romantic suspense featuring Scott Martin (paramedic) and Skye (country western singer). This book hasn’t been started yet, but is slated for May, 2014 release.

4. MUDFLAP UNDERCOVER…book #2 in the Mudflap series…this time our spies are going undercover into the motorcycle club world (several of the research books up there). This book hasn’t been started yet, but is slated for August, 2014 release. Like with book #1, all the proceeds will benefit the Lubbock, TX Red Cross.

*************

I do have one more release coming out this year. A short little m/m Christmas novella from Decadent’s 1NS series called THE CHRISTMAS TOP. I don’t have the exact release date yet, but it should be sometime before Christmas.

Thank you!! Helping the Red Cross

This morning I got to do one of the most awesome things I’ve ever had the opportunity to do as an author.

I sent a $3110.06 check to the Lubbock Red Cross.

Why?

Because you all bought

THE SHADOW OF MUDFLAP

Thank You!!

So, have you bought a copy of Mudflap yet??

If not, it’s not too late.

All the proceeds from the sale of this book….whenever they happen,

will go to the South Plains Chapter of the American Red Cross

(that’s the Lubbock, TX chapter where the book takes place.)

The e-book only costs $2.99.
And here are all the buy links for it:

To us, first responders are heroes. But for them, risking their lives is a normal, everyday thing.

Mudflap:
Born the baby of the family, Mudflap has always had something to prove to emerge out of the shadows of his older siblings. He spent eight years as a Special Ops elite sniper and is now a firefighter. But at his heart, he’s just a normal West Texas good old boy who loves his beer, women and football, until the Department of Defense calls him up to say they need his skills again.

Shanae:
Shanae is a first responder of a different sort. She’s a trauma nurse who works on a medical evacuation helicopter team. But while she lives a life full of adrenaline every day, it’s just a cover for her real life, where she hides in the shadows and is secret agent, Shadowfox for the Lubbock Foxtrot Team (LiFT). She’s living the kind of life that most people think exists only in movies and books.

Working for two different branches of the government, Mudflap and Shanae are in a race against time and the terrorists who threaten the very heart of West Texas life, football. They’re working toward the same goal, but find themselves in a confrontation against each other and the lies they’ve each had to hide behind. Can love win out in the end or will the cost be each other and their very lives?

First responders are heroes every day, but this story tells the tale of when they become even more and find love along the way. The key is for them to stay alive so that they can complete their mission and just maybe live happily ever after.

On an ordinary day, they save lives. On an extraordinary day, they save the country.
